Delicate Vera Wang Wedding Dress Returns Stronger Than Ever

When Laura slipped on her sleeveless Vera Wang, she just knew that her wedding day would be one to remember. What she didn’t know is that her wedding dress, as she remembered it when she slipped it on that happy morning, would not be the same after a long ceremony and hours of reception festivities. The day of the wedding is the happiest day of a bride’s life, but that day is not an easy one; navigating through large groups of people, decorations, and refreshments for several hours throughout wedding festivities can leave a wedding dress...

Vintage Wedding Gown and Bolero Restored

This beautiful vintage lace, cocktail length wedding dress and matching bolero came to us in a pretty sad state. Both pieces were severely yellow with a large oxidized stain on front of the skirt, and small oxidized stains elsewhere. This wedding dress has a zipper on the left side, with a scalloped neckline in the front and back. We gave this heirloom wedding dress some of our expert tender loving care. We cleaned it by hand and restored it’s original color with a chemical restoration bath. Both pieces responded beautifully and this...

Rowenna’s Wedding Dress Story

Rowenna’s Wedding Dress Strory By Jay Thorson My wife bought her wedding gown at a place called the “Bridal Palace” in Harwood Heights, Illinois. We were married December 10, 1983, at Augustana Lutheran Church in Chicago, near the University of Chicago campus. It was a delightfully snowy day! My wife’s maiden name was Beth G. Cunningham. We now live near Milwaukee. About a year after our wedding, I had the dress cleaned and stored in a typical preservation box. As children, I can remember our girls occasionally looking...

Barbara’s Vintage Wedding Dress is Vogue Again

We recently restored a beautiful 1960’s wedding dress. Barbara was thrilled to find it after it had been lost for nearly 40 years! Her wedding dress is a classic “Jackie Kennedy” style gown with short sleeves, and satin-covered buttons on back. When we received it it had oxidized stains on the front skirt and the buttons on back were damaged. We removed the buttons, spot cleaned the oxidized stains, dry cleaned the gown with a virgin solvent. The veil and gloves were spot cleaned. We then replaced the buttons with new ones...

Katy’s Wedding Dress Story

A Wedding Dress Strory By Katy R. This is the first gown I tried on, and I knew it was the one I wanted immediately. I had seen it online and went to Latter Day Bride’s show room in downtown Salt Lake City to try it on. Latter Day Bride caters to women who are planning to be married in LDS temples, where there are strict standards of dress in order to keep the focus of ceremonies on sacred things. My mom and sister came with me, and we all agreed that this was The One. My favorite feature of this gown is the lace up back. ...

Morena’s Amazing Wedding Dress Cleaning

Morena’s wedding in San Francisco, California was no doubt a wonderful success. Her beautiful Ramona Kaveza silk charmeuse gown had one strap and a train that hung on only one side. It is unique and lovely. Crystal buttons adorn the back. Morena also wore a chapel length veil. After her wedding however, the hemline of her gown was quite a mess. Of course there was also some perspiration and make up inside the gown along with a small purple stain on right breast, small gold-tone stain on front of bodice and a little grease, probably...

Robin’s Louisiana Wedding Celebration

A Wedding Dress Story By Robin N. I was *very* surprised when my fiancee proposed to me in Dec. 2013; I’d never pictured myself as a bride! I tried on a lot of dresses from many stores, trying to figure out which dress felt the most like me. No huge surprise that the one I chose had no tulle, or beading or ruffles; but the sweetheart neckline, cap sleeves and slim fit silk taffeta were just right for someone just coming to terms with being ‘a bride’. The dress was called Tulip and I just loved the way it looked and felt!I...

Samantha’s Wedding Dress Makeover

Samantha must have had a wonderful time on her wedding day. And apparently it was an outdoor wedding, or perhaps they just took some fabulous photos outdoors afterward, as there was significant dirt and grease on the hemline area. Thorough wedding dress cleaning was absolutely essential. Samantha’s wedding dress was absolutely amazing with layers of silk organza shaped in flower petals for the skirt. Volume was created with the horse-hair trim. The bodice included an inner corset, with perspiration, evidence of a fun event. Fortunately...
